New Delhi: Anaga Pradeep, a member of the Student Union Council, alleged that some boys were brought in from abroad to fight, resulting in the injury of two students on Thursday at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi due to a personal dispute. She also cited the absence of security guards on campus as a contributing factor.

JNU admin took no action

The chancellor claimed that despite warning of a disturbance in one of the dorms, neither the Security Bureau nor the National Unity University administration took any action to protect the safety of the students. The council member stated that JNU security had failed them “repeatedly”.

According to Delhi Police, at 5pm, a PCR call was received regarding a brawl near Narmada Hostel on the JNU campus. When the police team arrived on the scene, it turned out that there was a quarrel between two groups over a personal case in which two Taliban were injured.

Speaking to ANI, the student union member expressed her dissatisfaction with the security situation on the campus and said, “Last night we received a message about a quarrel in Narmada hostel and one of the students was severely crushed. Before that, there was a brawl in Sutlej hostel. The office of Sutlej has been informed. But neither they nor the National Unity University supervisor have taken steps to ensure the students’ security.”

Videos appeared on the Internet

Some videos of the brawl also surfaced on the University of New Jersey campus where some boys were seen running with sticks in their hands, however, Delhi Police said they are checking the videos.
